AirTight at Wireless LAN Professionals Conference WLPC in Dallas

by Sean Blanton on Mar 1, 2015

The Wireless LAN Professionals Conference is the brain child of Keith R Parsons - certified Wireless LAN professional, consultant and teacher. The conference consists of two days of fun, great topics, awesome gear, and wonderful networking. It features presentations from a vast array of experts in the field. The event is designed with two track sessions and short powerful talks called Ten Talks.

“We designed the Wireless LAN Professionals Conference to be the kind of event we’d like to personally attend. Lots of great technical content wrapped around an opportunity to spend time with our friends, colleagues, and a chance to meet more people who shared our passion for Wi-Fi. We say it is a conference for WLAN Professionals, by WLAN Professionals.”

Keith R. Parsons

2) Tales from the Trenches: Wi-Fi Troubleshooting in Distributed Environments

Network issues aren’t something new in any project. However, the troubleshooting task becomes challenging when it needs to be done remotely and when there isn’t much onsite IT help. This is often the case with the distributed Wi-Fi deployments. The session discusses tools and best practices for Wi-Fi troubleshooting in distributed environments, drawing on field deployments both large and small.

WizShark is a diagnostic tool built to make the process of Wi-Fi troubleshooting more enjoyable and fun. Based on the philosophy of “A picture is worth a thousand frames”, it abstracts key events of a complex packet trace in the form of rich visuals. This session demonstrates how to use Wizshark to troubleshoot Wi-Ficonnectivity issues. -
